Abstract
We analyse the different situations where a fluctuation theorem can be proved for a single macroscopic current of a system in
a nonequilibrium steady state sustaining several transport processes. We express the conditions under which such a fluctuation
theorem will hold in terms of the cycles and transport processes of the network. In this case, a given macroscopic current obeys
a fluctuation theorem regardless of the other transport processes. To cite this article: D. Andrieux, P. Gaspard, C. R. Physique 8
